About this Item

First edition: A lovely (and college-educated!) Virginia girl gets caught up in international political intrigue and derring-do, revolving around a dashing hero with mysterious ties to the Austrian Empire, but a secret passion for the American dream. Written by an Indiana-born politician and diplomat, the tale ? a national bestseller in its day ? is illustrated with a total of => seven plates by Clarence F. Underwood, a prominent "pretty girl" artist who worked for the Saturday Evening Post and Ladies' World magazine. The novel was made into a film in 1914 by the Famous Players Film Company and released just two months before the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. Binding: Publisher's blue cloth, front cover with a woods vignette stamped in orange, brown, green, and white; spine with tree vignette. Signed binding: front panel with initials R.R. (Rome K. Richardson) between the design and the author's name; the initials are somewhat difficult to make out, but Richardson's records confirm that this binding was indeed his work. 8vo (19.8 cm, 7.8"). Frontis., [10], 399, [5 (adv.)] pp.; 6 plts. Binding as above, mild wear to edges and extremities, minor spots of rubbing to front cover, some soiling to back one, and noticeable rubbing to spine motif; front free endpaper with pencilled ownership inscription and annotations. => A fun read, of interest for its signed binding, its Underwood illustrations, and its perspective on America's role in global politics of the early 20th century.
